I would like to respond to the individual who wrote regarding rescheduling. I've been a patient of Dr. Seger's for over a decade. During this period of time only once was I rescheduled. This Drs. expertise is so far beyond most that he has a lot of demands on him. I'd gladly be rescheduled knowing that Dr. Seger was taking care of someone who were experiencing an emergency. Sometime you have to wait a bit to have the very best.

I just read the mans email who was rescheduled multiple times. I have been a patient of Dr. Seger's for a number of years. I too have been rescheduled due to unexpected emergencies that come up in the hospital that can't be avoided. Dr Seger saved my life and I was one of those emergencies, so maybe I have a different perspective. Just as a side line I am a nurse and despite some unexpected rescheduling, I would never trust anyone but Dr. Seger.

Diagnosed my uncles pace maker as needing to be replaced. Subsequently he broke 3 appointments for further analysis. A doctors life is hectic and unpredictable but canceling multiple life saving procedures because you're too busy is inexcusable. As a result, I filed a complaint with Texas Medical Board for "cruel" treatment. I would never suggest anyone depend on him for life threatening treatment. He will cancel your appointment without an apology.
